  1. To the OP and others, I don't understand the reasoning behind wanting to use only 1 powder for different cartridges. Why compromise on performance?? It isn't hard to keep track of the powder in use. I use over 14 different powders regularly. Only 1 at a time so no problem. I use 3 different powders just for 5.56/223 loads. Cost isn't an issue as almost all powders are similar with the only outlier being VV. I even use 3 different VV powders. I will never understand the reasoning behind limiting performance by limiting powder selection.
  2. Lumpy, I think TG burns extremely clean. I haven't cleaned my 9mm STI Edge in over 2500 rounds. Like all powders it leaves some traces on the case but in my opinion it is very clean. I like it in small cases but don't use it in larger ones like 45ACP. Recoil is a bit snappy in 45ACP compared to WST. It is cheap to use and meters well.
  3. The #1 powder for 9mm loading in the US is Titegroup !!! Used by more than all other powders combined. Go to any USPSA or IDPA match and ask what they load with. Nearly all use Titegroup. So do I. Works perfect with any buller from 115 to 147.
  4. CGC, you will get LOTS of bad advise on annealing cases. Most overheat the brass thereby ruining it. Either use tempilac (available from Brownells) to make sure you get the temp right or use a commercial annealing machine to be sure. By hand with eyeballing the color is the easiest way to ruin brass. Especially short pistol brass.
  5. AR-10's can be picky about ammunition. Lots of factory loads are't optimized for gas guns. Like everything else you basically get what you pay for. I have shot several LaRue OBR's and they are amazingly accurate and reliable. The teams use them almost exclusively. Another one that is worth the money is the JP, but bring lots of money. Some level entry guns that seem reliable are from Rock River and LMT.
  6. Absolutely the best money you will ever spend if you want to shoot WBAS.
  7. Lumpy, ran the 223 full auto with no problems but didn't let one sit in the chamber for more than a minute. Seemed OK. The 308 only ran semi but it also performed fine. Polymer is slower to transfer heat than brass so powder should heat up slower. I can see the weight savings on something like a 50, but it is still a crew weapon so not sure about the actual improvement in the field. I still feel the best use is subsonic as the case walls can be thick and get a good powder fill with the low charge weights.
  8. I have fired the military experimental polymer cased rounds in 9mm, 223, 6.5, and 308. Not the 50 yet. The cases have brass bases.
  9. HOSS, the 38-55 will reach 500 meters just fine. I shoot a 335grain postell in mine out to 800 with a starting muzzle velocity of around 1350fps. You can use a slightly lighter bullet but you need the high BC to carry that far. Something in the range of 280grains with a gas check and smokeless with a MV of 1400-1450 ans reach 500 meters just fine. Make sure of the barrel twist and bore diameter as 38-55's vary widely. No need to get another gun unless you just want one. Put good sights on the 38-55 and enjoy the lighter recoil.
  10. Per KId Rich's post: We considered (very briefly) outlawing the use of BP or substitutes in Wild Bunch primarily because of the firearm problems the majority of users were having and the effect on the overall match flow. HOWEVER Wild Bunch Action Shooting is a SHOOTING match, and we want to reduce penalties and restrictions, not increase them. So we decided that if you can make it work fine, if you can't, you might miss a couple of stages as the match goes on. We (the WBAS Committee) have removed over a dozen MSV's and SDQ's since the start of Sanctioned WBAS competition. Too bad CAS can't do that also.
  11. 1960's, an extra 1911 in South Africa in an alley in an unnamed town for $10 American. Was working a "summer Job" for college money. Worked fine. Left it there for a replacement worker when I came back to the states.
  12. I only use 91 octane ethanol free fuel in my small gasoline generators. Buy it at the little fuel distributor in nearby town that makes my bulk deliveries. You can search on the internet for stations that sell it. It is surprising how easy it is to find but you have to look. All my big generators are diesel.
